Xbox Series X will release in China on June 10, as announced. The Xbox Series X is priced at RMB 3,899 ($605) and Xbox Series S is priced at RMB 2,399 ($372).
Pre-orders will begin from May 19 through online portals. All of this information was relayed by Niko Partners Daniel Ahmad. Microsoft isn’t the first platform to release its console in China. Sony is all set to release PS5 on May 16 as pre-orders sold out immediately. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when pre-orders for Xbox Series X goes live in China.
Ahmad also said in another tweet, “While hardware approvals have been easy to get, software is another story. Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S do not have a strong launch line up in China (officially) and rely on back combat. Imported discs or region switching online stores will be explored by Chinese gamers.”
